Romain Gauthier started in the watch industry as a micro-mechanical engineer who produced exacting parts for other watch brands. In 2005, Romain founded his eponymous brand to bring his own ideas to life. Romain was born and raised in the Vallée de Joux, and as a result, he has a deep love for the traditional watchmaking of the region. The result is a company that’s in the highest echelon of both engineering and traditional watchmaking techniques like hand finishing. Not to mention its origins as a parts supplier makes Romain Gauthier one of the most vertically integrated Independent watch companies in existence, especially when you take into account its very low annual production. Whatever your preferences in watches – high-end traditional techniques, cutting edge innovation, or beautiful design, Romain Gauthier has you covered.
